Patrick began his esoteric studies in the 70s, with 3 main teachers - Naqshibandi Sufi Sheikh Abdullah Dougan, Daoist Taiji Master Huang Xingxian, Raja Yogi Mouni Maharaj of Rajasthan.
Patrick practiced full time in the Kuala Lumpur school of Master Huang Xingxian, one of the most accomplished Taiji masters of recent times, who accepted Patrick as his personal disciple – the only non-Chinese to enter Huang's inner-school.
Patrick travelled and taught beween Asia, Australasia and Europe while continuing to work closely with these 3 teachers until their deaths -
Sage Abdullah Dougan in 1987,
Master Huang Xingxian late 1992,
Mouni Maharaj in 2007 at more than 105 years old.
At the express wish of his teachers, with the aim of making available the esoteric principles of internal development through the practice of esoteric Taiji, psychological self-refinement and meditation, Patrick established a worldwide teaching network.
This is a loose association of mature intelligent practitioners with no committees, no fees, no rules, no obligations, no organisation to join and none to leave – people simply practice what is taught with more or less energy and intelligence according to their choice.
Within it 100 senior practitioners (20+ years) along with 150 close practitioners (10–20 years) teach some thousands of students through their fully independent schools.
Patrick's true contact,both external and internal with the 3 great streams of esoteric teachings - the East Asian, the Indian and the Middle Eastern/European - supports this teaching, which aims to lead people deeply inside themselves towards the one formless Source which has no name.
Patrick's experiences within these 3 streams enliven his teaching. This worldwideway might condense to a few words:
"Seek a broad balance of experience in life":
harm no one,
understand others - change yourself,
stay positive in whatever life brings,
give respect to those who pass down the teaching,
feel grateful for the teaching,
be humble in the face of the high forces behind the teaching.
using any helpful exercises or meditations,
inward through the 3 levels of human existence,
etheric, astral and celestial
(jing, qi and shen).
"Reach out for the Beyond":
realising, as the Beyond grows within,
that your outer human existence is next to nothing
